A few weeks ago I put together a couple of cute things for a couple of friends of mine due to have babies, (one is now here, the other will be anyday now). I made.... nappy cakes.
The main part of the cake is made from rolled up nappies, the cake base is wrapped in muslin cloth, the top of the cake is decorated with a washable waterproof wet bag, baby socks and a knitted headband. Pretty much the whole thing is useful (at least that's the plan).
And while cleaning up the spare room the other day, I discovered a pile of knitted squares. I had knitted these years ago, before I had kids, for a friend's baby. But I never finished it. I have now decided to finish it and knit it for the next friend who has a little boy.
And tonight I finished sewing a hat for Chicken to match her skirt.
Ta Dah! It's reversible
Now Gremlin wants a hat of course, I'm thinking it'll be a dinosaur hat. Stay tuned!
